Is it possible to purchase a firearm and acquire a CCL? It has been ten years since I was charged with this type of crime and I am actively looking to expunge it so I can take up my hobby of shooting and being able to protect my family again.
The challenge is that you are likely prohibited by federal law from possessing a firearm. This is for two reasons, the fact that your punishment could have been for more than 1 year and secondly because it was for a crime of violence. The feds define crime of violence as "an offense that has as...Read more »
I was doing my routine walk around the local community college, and I usually stop inside a building for water and food. And I accidentally set off an alarm because apparently the campus is on lock down for COVID-19. And I was not informed about this, so I went to the campus police. But before I... Read more »
Highly dountful. Unless tou left out some facts the most to be worried about would be a summary trespass violation. Summary trespass would come in the mail. You made an admission which they can use against you. If you have a clean record and there are no missing facts a citation is the most...Read more »
You're asking very specific, technical questions concerning sentencing guidelines calculations, and I'll do my best to answer based on the information you've provided. The *current* offense gravity scores are as follows for the crimes you've listed:
My son stumbled upon illegal content on the internet. He closed it after he realized what it was but fears he may be charged. He is worried sick and we've only found conflicting information as to whether authorities even bother with cases that do not involve posession. Does he have anything to... Read more »
Yes, he could have valid concerns. By "viewing" a picture or video online, you still could be downloading content -- and authorities tracking certain illegal sites could be investigating every IP address that logs onto such file-sharing sites. You just don't know.
These calls and texts also being sent to my loved ones, saying horrible and awful things about me. Also trying to extort money and property from my family, specifically my mother. I know who it is but cannot prove it without the subpoena from the app Text Free. This person is also sharing personal,... Read more »
I was outside a bar with a friend waiting for a ride. Another man threatened my friend by saying "I'll break your neck before you hit the ground," after a situation escalated. He then pinned my friend (who was non-violent at the time) to a wall and my friend punched him numerous times in the... Read more »
What you did is considered an assault under the law. However, if you have a defense, such as self defense or defense of others to conduct is considered justified. That being said, the fact that you fled the scene shows what they call consciousness of guilt, and if the other party gives a statement...Read more »

There is a lot of information missing here to give you a good answer. Reaching out to the District Attorneys office would be a normal course of action. Keep in mind they may know nothing about the investigation but many times, depending on county, if its a drug delivery resulting in death...Read more »
I was accused of forgery from a woman that I was doing landscaping for, she recently passed away and I received a plea agreement from the state, I have not accepted it, as most officers have told me that the case will be thrown out. What are my next steps from here, will this case be thrown out?
Likely, but not necessarily. If she gave a statement to the police or District Attorney's Office before her death, there may be a way they can get that statement into evidence in a trial against you (as well as hearsay from her before her death as told to police officers, etc.). So you're not...Read more »
Generally, the legality of a vehicle stop/search comes up as a suppression issue. This is an effort to keep the information from the tryer of fact as it was illegally gotten (fruit of the poisonous tree). However, if there are wuestions about the stop they could impact the veracity of the...Read more »
He has had no contact with her in 7 years until recently he went to her place of employment. Simply to shop. She put out a pfa and stated in it that they dated when he was 18 and she was 12 (I know how wrong) but he hasn't had any contact with a minor since. And as stated it was nonsexual. Can they...

They won't decide because of the PFA, but he needs to consult an attorney who handles criminal cases because depending on what happened it can be an issue. He needs to get a copy of the PFA filing to begin with. He should not discuss this on social media.
The statute of limitations for Possession with Intent to Distribute (PWID), an ungraded felony, is five (5) years. The statute of limitations for Possession of a Controlled Substance, an ungraded misdemeanor, is two (2) years. So they've got a long time to re-charge and re-arrest you if they want...Read more »
My ex girlfriend went to the police saying that I was harassing her over text. The police called me and gave me the option to cease. All contact has stopped! Am I still in the clear or how long do I know if something is going to happen?
